HELENA -- Football was back in Vigilante Stadium on Friday.

Helena Capital hosted its annual Brown/Gold Scrimmage, giving coach Kyle Mihelish the opportunity to further evaluate his team. With high expectations entering the 2019 season, quarterback Bridger Grovom didn't disappoint. His offensive line gave him plenty of time, and he was able to pick apart the Bruins' second-team defense, completing a long catch-and-run touchdown to Parker Johnston.

Grovom also ran for a touchdown himself, and Capital's first-team offense got another scoring run from Tiegan Cozzie.

Shane Haller made some impressive receptions in the passing game, as well.

Defensively, the first stringers got good production. Anthony Guccione, who will play a big role in the Bruins' secondary this season, intercepted an overthrown pass and got a good return down the sideline that would've put the offense in scoring position had Friday's scrimmage been an actual game.

Capital opens its 2019 season at Billings Senior on Aug. 30. Kickoff is scheduled for 4 p.m. at Daylis Stadium.
